Zince explorer Connemara Mining has struck a high grade zinc-lead deposit with the first drill hole of its 2009 drilling programme in Limerick, the company said today.
The drill hole, which is located 1.5km northwest of an earlier discovery at Stonepark, could represent a new and potentially higher grade mineralisation zone.
“This is a very positive result," company chairman John Teeling said.
"The discovery has almost everything one would want – high grade, the right type of mineralisation, shallow depth and is located a good distance from the earlier discovery."
The drilling programme is being operated by Teck Ireland Ltd., a subsidiary of Teck Resources Limited, Canada’s largest diversified mining company.
